Happy Spring Break Week at Netflix Life! For today’s college theme, we matched your favorite Netflix characters as college majors.

Have you ever watched a Netflix show and wondered what your favorite character would be like in college?

No, that’s not weird at all, we have too, which is why we’ve created this list to possibly help with your Bridgerton college fanfictions. (You can thank us later.)

Check out this list we made where we match Netflix characters with college majors.

Netflix characters as college majors

Simon Basset from Bridgerton – Anatomy

Without a doubt, Simon Basset’s rather impressive experience with the human body (ahem), would make him an incredible anatomy major. Basset would take the time to learn every inch and corner of the body and be able to give a detailed report on everything he’s gathered.

He would pass with flying colors and would definitely be the classmate you get all your notes from, but don’t sit too close to him, or else you’ll be distracted by his alluring gaze and fail the class. However, that may not be such a bad thing…rumor has it, Simon is an amazing tutor.

Eleven from Stranger Things – Nuclear Engineering

What can we say? Eleven is a radioactive powerhouse and she would probably love to understand her powers better and tap into the potential of her supernatural abilities. Her favorite subject would be plasma physics.

She would probably be the student who stumbles in a little late every class, but would also be the teacher’s favorite because when she arrives she puts a little doughnut on his or her desk.

Oh, and she’s definitely the student who raises her hand for every question.

Joe from YOU Forensics or Criminal Justice

With how the guy manages to get away with everything and leave without a trace, yeah, he’s definitely a forensics or criminal justice major.

He has perfect attendance and would give amazing presentations on traumatic head injuries. The professor would sometimes even let him take over the class every now and then because he has a thing to teach or two.

Eventually, his classmates would get a little suspicious about how well Joe knows about how to get rid of bloodstains or how to avoid getting pulled over by the police, however, by the time his peers would connect the dots, the semester is already over. He’s gotten away with it, once again.

Ginny from Ginny and Georgia – Psychology

From having to move numerous times throughout your childhood to finding out that your mother may be a murderer, Ginny would certainly study the mind and figure out just how much the mind could take in secrets and plot twists.

Ginny would be the student who sits all the way in the back while reading her favorite books, but would somehow pass every test. She’s also the type that gets excited to pull out a bunch of pretty pens and pencils should you ever need one.

She would make a great therapist as she would bluntly let her clients know what needs to change and how to make it happen.

Veronica Lodge from Riverdale – Performing Arts

You can’t tell me that Veronica Lodge wouldn’t be the lead of every and any theatre production at her university. It’s to the point where she doesn’t even have to audition, she’s just automatically cast in the main role.

Veronica would acquire some jealousy with all her talent and beauty, but once her peers hear her voice, they would quickly become fans of her voice and watch all her covers on YouTube. (Her “Eres Tu” rendition is everyone’s personal favorite.)

She would be the student who arrives first in class and warms up loudly for the whole building to hear, but no matter who you are, you can’t help but listen.


Jamal from On My Block – Undecided

Jamal would either major in everything that interests him or he would major in nothing, either way, this hyper guy can’t decide what he wants to study.

If it doesn’t have anything to do with Rollerworld or gnomes, the class would have to be super interesting for him to pay attention. Otherwise, he’ll just fall asleep or skip class with Rudy’s grandmother.

Jamal would definitely be that student who texts during class and gets his phone taken away. The worst part is, he’ll probably hunt for a student to send him the notes for class. (Ugh, just drop the class, Jamal!)

Klaus Hargreeves from The Umbrella Academy – College Drop Out

The Umbrella Academy season 3 - Netflix characters

You can’t tell me that Klaus Hargreeves wouldn’t hate the idea of college would every once of his being.

Getting up early to take a three-hour final, having to share a room with a different stranger every year, studying, Klaus wouldn’t last a second in college. He probably just wanted to go because there was nothing else to do and he wanted to have a new experience.

He did manage to get kicked out of every class from talking too much, though. And he interrupted several college football games trying to find the bathroom. And he got busted by the RA for throwing college parties in his dorm.

On second thought, maybe college would be perfect for Klaus.
